As we say on this blog, art therapy is great for happiness. My favourite art is surrealism, Picasso, Dali, et al, my favourites are usually the contemporary art museums, the painting I am obsessed with at the moment is Bosch’s Pleasure Gardens. And no, not because he was Dutch 🙂
The sad thing is I can not draw. Or to rephrase, I believe I can not draw. Or even more precisely, I have not decided I can draw yet. Remember Picasso’s famous phrase that he can not draw but he does it anyway because that’s the only way to do it?
But I have concepts in my head. So I have to use various surrogate means, like collages and computer graphics (which I am also not too good at 🙂 ) to get whatever things are in my head out. You have to get them out, hence the therapy.
Above all I like conceptual art. The medium, how the art is delivered is not that important to me. I have recently found an art blog (Hello, Fig) that I quite liked, some works there made me smile. But what I also liked about that blog is how the creator experiments with the medium. Collages, brave rework of existing works, etc. Let it be an inspiration to us – everyone can make art. Just figure out the way that works for you.
I promised to share a work of mine which I thought Hello, Fig would like. Here it goes, Cry Of A Fox, inspired by several years in London.
